A massive, 400-feet long crop circle allegedly appeared overnight in a wheat field in the county of Dorset, South West England. While a number of crop circles were appearing in the area, this particular one is making headlines for its sheer size and the intricacy of the pattern. The crop circle in Dorset featured a star pattern with circles within circles.
The Dorset crop circle, which was filmed by amateur pilot and crop circle enthusiasts, Matthew Williams says that, “whoever, or whatever, created the shape must have been there all night – you have to really admire their handiwork,” in an interview by the Daily Mail. Check out the Dorset crop circle here:
Found in July 2014, the crop circle in Dorset is regarded as one of the most spectacular formations by veteran crop circle maker, John Lundberg. “[Wheat is] the best crop to work in, that’s when the most spectacular circles appear. Because each stem is upright, you can get pin sharp clarity.”
The perpetrator(s) behind the latest crop circle in England has never been found nor identified. According to Williams, crop circle markers rarely make them anymore because of the growing frustration of farmers over the loss of crops and tourists coming in to visit. Most crop circle makers are also afraid of paying hefty fines and thus, has stopped making the circles altogether.
Williams himself paid £100 after being busted for a crop circle in 2000. He has since stopped making them not because of the fines but because he developed hay fever over the years.
While most crop circles were obviously made by people, some circles, like the one seen over at Dorset, baffles the mind because of its size and how it appeared seemingly overnight without alerting people. Some wonder if the Dorset crop circle is made by extraterrestrials or have some other paranormal origins.
In an interview with Daily Express, Williams shared that he experienced a lot of paranormal activities in the field while making the circles. Two particular experiences stood out:
“I’ve seen small balls of light which have entered the field and chased us out on one occasion. I’ve seen them passing overhead. On two occasions, we’ve also seen black, shadowy figures. Not as clear as a person, a little more rounded but a human shape. There are so many things like that. When teams of people go out into the fields and make large talismanic magical symbols, somehow that does actually have some effect on physical reality and strange things happen.”
